I am loving have my windows open! So nice and perfectly warm here not too hot and not too cold. I joined http://www.freecycle.org/ and also http://www.listia.com/ recently. I also am on http://www.craigslist.com/ for my area where I am located. Freecycle is about giving away and receiving things for free. Listia is a points based bidding system to get things for free and list your items to give away. Craiglist is another way to get things for free or sometimes pay little to nothing for them. Just thought you might want to check these out. Happy recycling! By the way reading books from your public library is a form of recycling too.
